Body Image and Mindful Eating Program
About this program
The Body Image & Mindful Eating program works with participants to support them in achieving a healthy relationship with food and to accept themselves and their bodies in their natural form. The central focus of the program is for participants to feel heard and understood in their struggles around body image and food. The facilitators focus on balancing two aspects; introducing practical skills around mindful eating, and experiential exercises that foster participant's reflection on their past, present and future. It aims to encourage participants to develop a long-term, sustainable and healthy relationship with food, by concentrating on the underlying reasons of why you eat - rather that what you eat.
Who this program is designed for
The program was designed for women and teenagers/young adults who would benefit from an improved body image, increased self-awareness and understanding, improved confidence, and a healthier and sustainable relationship with food.
How this program works
The program will run over six consecutive weeks, with each session lasting two hours.
Sessions will take place in small group settings (maximum 10 people) in a warm and welcoming environment.
The program will introduce a new topic each week, with relevant experiential activities for the participants, and will also include a significant portion of each session for open discussion among the group.
Participants will be able to explore their relationship with food and gain awareness and self-confidence, whilst improving their overall health and quality of life.
